Joe Rothwell joins Man Utd first-team training

Louis van Gaal has given another youngster the opportunity to train with Manchester United’s first-team in Joe Rothwell. The 19-year-old midfielder was pictured in training today and will be excited to be in and around the first-team.

Having impressed for Warren Joyce’s U21s side recently, Rothwell has been rewarded for his hard work and it continues what has been an excellent season of progression for him.

His recent performance against Blackburn in a 5-0 victory would have particularly caught the eye of Van Gaal as Rothwell scored twice having come off the bench including this world class finish off the back of an excellent team move.

Rothwell is one of a number of young midfielders who are coming through United’s academy right now including Ben Pearson and Josh Harrop, and it’s great to see Van Gaal still bringing youngsters through into the first-team so willingly.
